Watchman's Note

This is a journey to the best designs in the world of Handpicked and presented (along with my own artwork) by yours truly, the driving force behind Surreality designs. We'll discover great artists and special products -mostly with a taste for the eccentric. But let us not confine ourselves in specific genres: the possibilities are endless and so is the great art one can find at Zazzle.


Free and beautiful

How come this vibrant painting of a young girl with an umbrella walking on the streets of Dublin reminds me so much of summer? Well, I guess it's the colors. This explosion of warm, glorious colors balancing with the subtler, cooler hues that transform the image into a dreamy walk towards the seaside.
This is an exquisite poster from Nerosunero, the store that showcases the great work of Mario Sughi -an Italian illustrator living in Dublin.

His vivid style is said to bring back memories of David Hockney but I think (looking at the sexy "Dancing" poster) that there is a trace of good old Milo Manara in there, too. All this namedropping can be quite unfair: Mario's artwork conveys a unique flavor and his good-looking people and psychedelic landscapes form his own, distinctive universe. An enchanting, sensual universe that gets richer by a hidden sadness and a nostalgic touch. That's the material life -and summers- are made of!
